Two Talents…One Major Body of Work
Meticulously thought out in every detail, “Tease” shows the work of two sophisticated artists making their mark with an expertly written, performed, and produced LP that will undoubtedly find its way into your home and heart.
What started as a single guest feature quickly transformed into a full 8-song joint venture when it became instantly clear that the two artists brought out the best in each other. Blossom’s poetic lyrics and emotive tones meld effortlessly around HOT16’s unique production.
Strong, black, and imbued with magic, Blossom shows depth & feeling in every note while HOT16’s soulful tracks work as the perfect backdrops for her beautiful odes to identity, empowerment, love, and its accompanying heartache.
With a multitude of styles reflected on the album, each song can rightfully stand on its own. However, “Tease” is best understood within the context of the whole, as genres are allowed to meld together and a larger narrative unfolds.
Take note, as the album is both a sonic world unto itself, as well as only a Tease of what’s to come.
Blossom has recently been fulfilling her namesake – with roots in Trinidad & Tobago – she has bloomed in the Pacific Northwest’s music scene. Born into a musically inclined family, she embraced the stage naturally at the age of 12. For many years she performed alongside her uncle with his traveling steel drum band.
Blossom’s jazzy neo-soul inspired voice and meaningful lyrics have found her in the favor of Portland’s underground hip-hop scene. In the winter of 2014 she released her first for-download project, Eclectic Garden which has lead to steady gigs around the Portland area.
